    Cruel and inefficient but Yeah I guess that's why it makes them "melt"

    Speaking of willing to accept shoddy research!

    Is Salt really bad for you ?
    “You can say without any shadow of a doubt,” as I was told then by Drummond Rennie, an editor for The Journal of the American Medical Association, that the authorities pushing the eat-less-salt message had “made a commitment to salt education that goes way beyond the scientific facts.”

    While, back then, the evidence merely failed to demonstrate that salt was harmful, the evidence from studies published over the past two years actually suggests that restricting how much salt we eat can increase our likelihood of dying prematurely. Put simply, the possibility has been raised that if we were to eat as little salt as the U.S.D.A. and the C.D.C. recommend, we’d be harming rather than helping ourselves.


    WHY have we been told that salt is so deadly? Well, the advice has always sounded reasonable. It has what nutritionists like to call “biological plausibility.” Eat more salt and your body retains water to maintain a stable concentration of sodium in your blood. This is why eating salty food tends to make us thirsty: we drink more; we retain water. The result can be a temporary increase in blood pressure, which will persist until our kidneys eliminate both salt and water.

    The scientific question is whether this temporary phenomenon translates to chronic problems: if we eat too much salt for years, does it raise our blood pressure, cause hypertension, then strokes, and then kill us prematurely? It makes sense, but it’s only a hypothesis. The reason scientists do experiments is to find out if hypotheses are true.


    In 1972, when the National Institutes of Health introduced the National High Blood Pressure Education Program to help prevent hypertension, no meaningful experiments had yet been done. The best evidence on the connection between salt and hypertension came from two pieces of research.
    One was the observation that populations that ate little salt had virtually no hypertension. But those populations didn’t eat a lot of things — sugar, for instance — and any one of those could have been the causal factor. The second was a strain of “salt-sensitive” rats that reliably developed hypertension on a high-salt diet. The catch was that “high salt” to these rats was 60 times more than what the average American consumes.


    Still, the program was founded to help prevent hypertension, and prevention programs require preventive measures to recommend. Eating less salt seemed to be the only available option at the time, short of losing weight. Although researchers quietly acknowledged that the data were “inconclusive and contradictory” or “inconsistent and contradictory” — two quotes from the cardiologist Jeremiah Stamler, a leading proponent of the eat-less-salt campaign, in 1967 and 1981 — publicly, the link between salt and blood pressure was upgraded from hypothesis to fact.


    The idea that eating less salt can worsen health outcomes may sound bizarre, but it also has biological plausibility and is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, too. A 1972 paper in The New England Journal of Medicine reported that the less salt people ate, the higher their levels of a substance secreted by the kidneys, called renin, which set off a physiological cascade of events that seemed to end with an increased risk of heart disease. In this scenario: eat less salt, secrete more renin, get heart disease, die prematurely.
    there is no proof whatsoever that the first word of it is truthful. Not one "fact" is has been corroborated

A new drill with two batteries and a charger today costs about $90. So for $15 more I get all new. The old drill is like new so then I would have two drills and three batteries. Go figure, right?
    Lets see if I can "teach an old dog a new trick" (No disrespect intended just a saying)
    Buy the portable skill saw or Sawsall set from the same brand instead... Then instead of having 2 drills's you will have another useful tool and the new batteries.
    Also there is a place called Batteries Unlimited in Daytona...Call them about refurbing your old battery, you may well be surprised at the cost.

    {QUOTE=ROOT;98694]And this is how the Art of Food Preservation becomes Lost.[/QUOTE]

    Salting is the preservation of food with dry edible salt. It is related to pickling (preparing food with brine, i.e. salty water). It is one of the oldest methods of preserving food, and two historically significant salt-cured foods are dried and salted cod (usually referred to as salt fish) and salt-cured meat. Vegetables such as runner beans and cabbage are also often preserved in this manner.

    Salting is used because most bacteria, fungi and other potentially pathogenic organisms cannot survive in a highly salty environment, due to the hypertonic nature of salt. Any living cell in such an environment will become dehydrated through osmosis and die or become temporarily inactivated.

    It was discovered in the 19th century that salt mixed with nitrites (saltpeter) would color meats red, rather than grey, and consumers at that time then strongly preferred the red-colored meat. "curing salt" or "pink salt." Is typically a combination of salt and sodium nitrite, with the pink color added to distinguish it from ordinary salt.

    Default How Apple Gets You To Buy New iPhones Over And Over Again

    Ever wonder why your iPhone seems to slow down after a few years? Why the once-amazing device gets cranky and struggles to perform basic tasks or load apps?
    The answer lies in Apple's software, and it's a key part of the company's strategy to keep millions of people buying new iPhones.
    Apple releases a new mobile operating system every year, and that keeps a powerful cycle in motion. Each fall for the last few years, people have rushed to download the latest and greatest version of iOS, which is designed for -- and, as a result, works best on -- the newest hardware that is also released around the same time. In the months leading up to the release, many app developers furiously update their apps for the latest operating system.


    Here's how that affects you: If you have an iPhone that's more than two years old, and as Apple recommends, you've upgraded the operating system a couple of times since you bought it, you may find yourself wanting to throw your phone against a wall. It's likely gotten slow and finicky.
    For many, the solution is simply to buy a new iPhone.
    It's highly unlikely Apple deliberately slows down older iPhones just to get you to upgrade. The company declined to comment for this story. Instead, Apple designs the new operating systems, which have more features, take up more space and require more computing power, for the new iPhones. And a consequence of that is they don't work as well on older iPhones.
    The system has been pretty successful for Apple. iPhone owners in the U.S. tend to shell out big bucks for a new iPhone about every two years (which, not coincidentally, is also the length of the traditional wireless contract.)
    But with its latest update to iOS 8, Apple hit a few bumps.
    Last month, the company made the rare move of pulling an update to the operating system after some people reported it left their phones unable to make calls and their fingerprint sensors useless. Although Apple said the bugs only affected a small number of people, and the company soon released a fix, the episode led to a spate of bad publicity. That, along with the whopping five gigabytes of precious storage space needed to download the update wirelessly, seems to have made people shy away from downloading the new OS en masse. Apple fans are adopting the new operating system much more slowly than they adopted iOS 7, the previous version.
    Still, a huge number of people rushed to download iOS 8 in the first few days it was available.
    Justen Meyer, a 33 year-old who works in the pro sports industry in St. Louis, was one of those people. He regrets updating his iPhone 4S, which he says is now "slow."
    "It's horrible. My apps don't work. Twitter won't open," he said in an interview recently.
    Before the update, his phone was "perfect," he said. "I was completely happy. Now it's making me wonder if I'm going to go through this the next time I get a new phone."
    Meyer isn't alone. People complaining about their iPhones feeling slow after new iPhones and operating systems come out is nothing new. Catherine Rampell wrote in The New York Times last year that her iPhone 4 felt "a lot more sluggish" after the 5S and 5C were released. Sendhil Mullainathan, a professor of economics at Harvard, noted in another Times story this summer that Google searches in the U.S. for "iPhone Slow" spike when each new iPhone is released.
    Part of that could be because so many people download the new operating system at the same time, iMore Editor-in-Chief Rene Ritchie pointed out earlier this year. Apple releases its new OS to everyone at the same time, while Android updates hit different phones at different times. (This is one of the reasons why Android's operating system is so fragmented -- only a quarter of Android owners are on the latest version of the operating system.)
    iPhone models that are a year old -- the next-to-latest generation -- tend to do fine when they're upgraded to the latest operating system, said Mike Gikas, who as the senior electronics editor at Consumer Reports has reported on the testing of every iPhone that has come out.
    It's the older ones that begin to lag, Gikas said.
    "We do know as the phone becomes older, the apps seem to become sluggish and some of the capabilities diminish," he said.
    Indeed, Twitter is full of people complaining about their phones slowing down after downloading iOS 8.
    finally got the iOS 8 update & I'm pretty sure it was more of a downgrade. phone has never been so slow or unresponsive. #rant 📱🔫

    Ios 8 was specially made to make my iphone5 super slow. 😪

    New software has been slowing down older hardware since before we were jamming CD-Roms into our Gateway 2000s. What's different with iPhones is the sheer breadth of third-party software that runs on the phones. Apple has 1.3 million apps in its App Store. And in order for those apps to remain relevant and keep working, developers have to update them to work with Apple's latest software and hardware.
    Apple aggressively pushes developers to design apps that work on the latest operating system, said John Poole, the founder of Primate Labs, a Toronto-based company that makes apps to measure the speed of smartphones.
    "Apple encourages developers to target the latest version of iOS by providing tools and APIs that only support the latest version of iOS," Poole wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "For example, itís difficult to write an app that supports both iOS 7 and the new iPhones' screen sizes."
    Poole added that Apple's huge publicity machine that is the App Store currently promotes apps and games for iOS 8, which provides a further incentive for developers to design for the latest and greatest.
    Of course, Apple wants to develop its software, too, and it isn't looking backward to make sure older versions of the iPhone work perfectly with newer versions of iOS. In order for Apple to remain a leader in the highly competitive smartphone game, it needs to innovate and focus on optimizing people's experience with the newest products.
    "Apple faces that choice: Do they create an operating system that works well on older devices, or do they create an operating system that takes advantage of the latest hardware?" Poole said. "Apple's focus has been to make a compelling operating system that takes advantage of the latest phones rather than an operating system that will work well on older phones."
    And therein lies the conundrum -- or, if you're Apple, the genius: You want to download Apple's latest software since that's what developers are developing apps for, and it comes with new features and important security fixes. But if your phone's more than a year old, it may slow it down.
    Christopher Mims, a former technology and science editor for Quartz who's now a technology columnist at The Wall Street Journal, has been using Apple products for more than 20 years. In a story for Quartz last year, Mims explained how he's found a way to get more time out of an older iPhone: He simply chooses not to download the latest operating system.
    "Except for small, incremental updates, do not upgrade the operating system of the hardware you are using," he wrote. "Especially if itís currently getting the job done."
    Mims now has an iPhone 5S, last year's flagship phone. And he has no plans to download iOS 8.
    "The only time you should [update your OS] is when critical apps stop working and demand you upgrade to the new OS," Mims told HuffPost via Twitter. "Apple has always been like this. It was true with Macs, now it's true with iPhones. Incremental upgrades are fine. But whole number upgrades? Just don't. You get them when you get a new phone."

    I'm starting to suspect that the problem with the Samsung note 7 catching fire is a deliberate code that was intended to negate performance after a specific time in order to encourage buying a new device. Yet it has malfunctioned and is having unintended consequences, rather than purposely shortening battery life it has caused catastrophic failure.
